3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Mountain Sun. Orange in color, thin creamy white head. Aroma of yeast, notes of citrus. The first thing I notice was a very soft, easy palate. Drinkable and refreshing. The name fits the beer; subtle but very enjoyable.

Not really into these Belgian ipas. This was good, but nothing special. Tons of better brews here.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught. Pours sparkling orange with an average, rocky white head, mostly lasting with good lacing. Aroma is average malt (grain, hay straw), average hop (flowers, grass), average yeast (horse blanket, barnyard, earth) with notes of apple, wine, pepper, coriander, and ginger. Medium bodied, sticky texture, average carbonation, and a bitter finish. Average duration, light sweetness, moderate acidity and bitterness.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft: Hazy orange hue with a nice head. Sprightly up front, smoother toward the finish. Great balance between the cakey-sweet malts and the flowery-spicy hops. Great hints of white pepper and lemon. Some biscuity-yeasty-earthy flavors in the background. Finishes with a lingering, peppery bitterness that’s slightly drying. Surprisingly enjoyable combination of an earthy-yeasty Belgian ale married with a classic American pale ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewpub in Boulder, CO. Golden pour. Floral hopped, Belgian yeast, and a hint of orange in the aroma. Belgian candi sugar, corriander, and a hint of lemon flavors. It’s good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ the brewery. Nose is subtle yeasty bread and light sugar with backend of bitter, citric hops poking up there. Flavor is a good mix of the belgian yeast and sweetness (and a very light funkiness) that blends into the crisp, dry american hop profile to finish. Well done blend of the styles. Was easy to roll through a few of these.
